It takes more than code to be a great engineer. We discuss all of it. Soft Skills Engineering is a weekly question and answer podcast where we answer questions about all of the non-technical things that go along with being a software developer.


Jamison and Dave talk about these questions: I have a great, comfortable job that doesn’t push me very hard. How do I deal with worrying about being left in the dust? How do I deal with imposter syndrome?
